Conferences & Schools – 2021

Below is a manually curated list of meetings relevant to quantitative gene regulation, specifically focused on chromatin biophysics and epigenetics. Feel free to suggest new events by submitting this form. Complementary manually curated lists of conferences are available at the web sites of EpiCypher, Active Motif, Abcam and epigenie (chromatin and epigenetics), Australian Epigenetics Alliance, Ulrich Schwarz (soft matter & biological physics), Paul Knoepfler (stem cells & regenerative medicine), the Node (developmental biology) and London RNA Club. For more general conference lists see EMBL Conferences and Events, FEBS Conference calendar, Keystone Symposia, Gordon Research Conferences and CSHL Meetings. We also maintain a separate list of funders providing conference travel grants. Please feel free to to suggest your events for inclusion in this database by filling the online form.
